FIS has supported CICV (a collaborative construction trade body in Scotland) in developing a new major new survey to help establish an overview of the current state of payments and cashflow in the Scottish construction industry.

Created by the CICV’s Pipeline & Commercial sub-group, the answers will help us shape a strategy to address ongoing issues, in consultation with the Construction Leadership Forum and The Scottish Government.

Commenting on the survey, FIS CEO Iain McIlwee stated:

“This is another important piece of work that the CICV is doing and it is great to see a genuine focus on collaboration across the wider sector once more being emodied through this group.  With the Government’s Payment review announced, we need to be honest about where we are as an industry – this is something we at FIS will really be stepping up the ante on this year.  Getting to the real data will help spotlight real concerns and instruct how legislation (and behaviours) need to change. Poor payment practices and process management around payment are a cancer at the core of construction. Please share your data so together we can drive change.”

FIS encourage anyone who works in construction to take part in the survey, which closes on 27 January and can be accessed here.

All answers are confidential.
